Instead of storing carbon, researchers want to convert it into fuel.
A 'smart skin' employs the unique fluorescent characteristics of carbon nanotubes to quickly assess strain in materials. The method is intended for aircraft, spacecraft and critical infrastructures in which mechanical strain needs to be monitored.
Stanford researchers retooled an electron microscope to work with visible light and gas flow, making it possible to watch a photochemical reaction as it swept across a nanoparticle the size of a single cold virus.
CIRE2N sponsored a summer research program from June, 18 to July, 13 2018; in order to promote excellence in science education for high schools that allowed 10 student-teacher pairs to participate.
